NSA Spying Has Tech Companies Worried About Their Most Precious Thing

NSA Spying Has Tech Companies Worried About Their Most Precious Thing

“"Big technology companies are seeing signs that the public's worries about government spying are a threat to their future profits, analysts say."

It is about cashing on snooping and not about the security. Actually it is opposite of security.”

“I was told that the best performance was from defense industry.
Here it is:
#1 United States
The United-States of America remains the largest exporter of conventional weapons in the world, according to the latest study by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI). The U.S account for 30% of global arms sales, or about $7 billion per year, for the period 2005-2009, SIPRI statement says. From 2005 to 2009, the U.S. sold one-third of its arm exports to South Korea (15%), Israel (13%) and the United Arab Emirates (11%).

Worldwide arms exports are surging. They're up nearly 30% since 2008, according to a new report from defense analyst IHS Jane's.

Weapons exports totaled $73 billion in 2012, up from $57 billion four years earlier. Total worldwide defense spending in 2012 was $1.6 trillion.

The United States far outpaced the pack, and is projected to hold that lead in 2021.

Autism Ends With Lower Rubella Titers

Holding fast to her conviction that the MMR vaccine had caused her son’s autistic behaviors and that intravenous immune globulin intravenous infusions (IGIV) could help boost his IgG levels, heal his primary immune system and lead to reduced autistic symptoms, she contacted Sudhir Gupta, M.D., Ph.D., University of California professor of medicine and immunology for help. Gupta confirmed that Garrett had elevated rubella titers as well as very low IgA and low levels of IgG subclasses.

“First, you are comparing apples and oranges. The overnight banking rate has always been lower than any other rate.

The real tragedy here is that parents and students are out there borrowing 10's and 100's of thousands of dollars to get a lousy education and to be brainwashed into Left-wing values. The only reason tuition is so expensive today is because of the easy availability of Student Loans. This is a scam which has recently reached over $1 Trillion in open Student Loan accounts. And when they graduate, they are faced with low opportunities for good-paying jobs, but must begin paying back these outrageous sums.

This only underlines the Leftist values of Ellen Warren and her crusade to pull us even further toward the left than we already are.”

“I consumed it my whole childhood, so fresh it was still warm. It was not a farm, there was only one loved cow in the family and they were selling the milk to us. It wasn't in this country.
My kids had the same experience in Austria and they loved it too.
Do you test the milk from store? Do you trust it completely? Remember some recalls of tainted foods?”

“A document called Studies on Bifidobacterium DN-173 010 from Danone again referred to the Meance studies without mentioning that the groups that ate Activia didn’t show a statistically significant improvement. The FTC also charged that the purported “summaries” failed to mention one peer-reviewed study and five unpublished studies that showed no statistically significant improvement in transit time when the Activia group was compared to the placebo group. All told, the FTC alleged that 8 of 10 scientific studies showed no statistically significant effect of Activia on transit time when compared to placebo. As a result, the FTC charged that Dannon’s claim that Activia was clinically proven to relieve temporary irregularity and help with slow intestinal transit time was false.

“So real yoghurt, real milk (not the pasteurized without probiotics full of hormones and antibiotics with little pesticides, herbicides) is very much needed for kids to thrive?

"Probiotics seem to decrease autism-like symptoms in mice, according to a new study."
"Caltech researchers caution that much more work is needed before a reliable probiotic can be developed as a therapy for human autism. "

Why not to have the real deal in the real food instead of buying it separately and paying fortune for it?

“There are many pathogens that cows can be infected with and dairy farms do not test for because pasteurization kills off any pathogens in the milk. If you don't have access to milk from cows that you know are tested and healthy, unpasteurized milk is extremely risky to drink.”
